I don't see what everyone likes about this place. The food is not really that good. I see everyone wearing the t-shirts and hear many tourist recommending it to other tourist, but I'll probably never go back there again.

Went to Pineapple Willies with my mom when I was younger.. Now we take our kids and grandkids. It is just a fun atmosphere and so awesome to eat on the pier at the beach. You can even bring a couple beach chairs/towels and go to the beach from their pier. Great Place!

One of the best beach views of any restaurant. Right on the beach. Option of dining indoors or on the expansive deck. Food is average and the menu is limited.

Eric also has another place we love to drop in for lunch and that is the "Wicked Wheels Bar & Grill". It is a famous place during the Thunder Beach event. My brother... More

This is a theme restaurant. The food is not horrible but overpriced for what you get. There is usually a pretty long wait on a week night with at least 40 minutes. It does overlook the water which is nice and it has a gift shop. Expect to spend at least $80-$100 for a family of 4. Nothing to write... More

Visa Card really put them on the map with the advertisement "You can order anything anything you want but leave your American Express card at home because they only take Vusa Card. "

This is a landmark eating spot on the beach now nestled between condo towers and Gulf sand beaches. Prices are reasonable and food wait times are better than average. Sometimes there is live music and the staff seems generally pleasant and laid back. Pineapple Willy's is aimed at the get a bit to eat in the beach breeze and unwind... More

Indoor seating is fine--some Gulf view. Outdoor deck seating is more fun, but the seats and tables are hard metal, which isn't the most comfortable. Totally understandable though, given the environment. The food is good, although a little pricey. Fun place, overall.

Really enjoyed our meal here. It was surprisingly good and our server was this best. I wish we had eaten here again before we left PCB. Great menu selection. Not limited like many of PCB restaurants. Seating on pier over looking Gulf was great!
